Sweet tooth. What were your fave sweets of your youth?

When I was a boy and teenager (1960s and 70s) I used to love Old Jamaica chocolate bars and those fizzy flying saucers and Aztec bars as well as gobstoppers and aniseed balls. As a little boy growing up in Derby UK sweets were called tutoos.  What were your faves and from what era?
Old Jamaica only 9p!

Licorish Allsorts. I loved the blue ones

Fizz fizz fizz! mmm, orange tongue!

Do you recall the advert on the telly for this?

Oh dear, it's the food police!

Whilst browsing the internet this morning I found these bits of foodie silliness. Thought I would share them with you.

Costume drama
A Tesco store has banned shoppers from walking the aisles in pyjamas. A sign at the St Mellons shop in Cardiff reads: "To avoid causing offence or embarrassment to others we ask that our customers are appropriately dressed when visiting our store (footwear must be worn at all times and no nightwear is permitted)."

Supermarket silliness
Tesco has sparked fury by banning a father for carrying his daughter on his shoulders. Martin Dunkley, 48, was entering a Cambridge store with daughter Natalie, six, when a security guard demanded she dismount for safety reasons or leave the supermarket as they presented potential danger to other shoppers.

Bubble and squeak guidance
Householders are to be visited by officials offering advice on cooking with leftovers, in a government initiative to reduce waste. Doorstep lectures also include portion sizes, "best before" dates and freezer use. The officials, named "food champions", have been dismissed by critics as "food police".
